Is anyone else here feeling pretty much turned off by the elitist moderators on HubPages?


Their explanations for allowing some questions to stand and banning others are beyond lame. Then there is that "thing" of banning decent people without explanation and choosing not to respond to reports on Hate speech, unless the reporter is highly liberal. There is no balance here. Maybe this site should be called BiasedPages. Seriously, this high school nonsense is ridiculous. Well, if I suddenly disappear from BiasedPages without a trace, my friends will know why.

    Amen, Paul. You couldn't have said it any better. Our world has become less safe as a result of biased editing. A liberal professor did a study on the media, believing it was fair. He was shocked to discover a 95% leaning to the far left.

    Best of luck this time around, David. I've met some good people here. The others I avoid unless I choose to defend someone who is being kicked around.

    I've had questions banned, Jodah, but mostly I am turned off by the poor, if non-existent management of moderators. I've seen a sweet Christian girl get banned for no other reason than that she defended herself. That was really low..

    Kylyssa, I do not delete comments unless they are particularly vile and demeaning. Yours isn't. I believe you are right in saying that Hubpages does not care about Hate speech. As for hateful conservatives, I have taken them on too. Believe me.

    Well said, Dean. Free speech does take a "major hit", because these people are just instigating vulgarity for their own entertainment. All I know is that the moderators keep banning the wrong people, hubs, and comments, over and over.

    "If you are active and remain of the forums you are either mealy mouthed or connected."

    Can confirm. Used to post heavily on the forums, am now perma-banned. Someone apparently didn't like my use of logic and reason and biting satire.

    Definitely, Ilona. I've never posted a question on a forum. I've had comments deleted, like when I asked "How people feel about the Iran deal?" The question was unpublished. Huh? Another case of biased editing. So wrong.

    Yes, Paula. It is like the Orwell phrase, "All pigs are equal, but some are more equal than others. So, as long as nice little conservatives keep their mouths shut, they may stay. Ha! Hell will freeze over before you and I play that game, girlfriend.

    I'm not saying they never get it right, but I can only assume, like Paula said, that moderators don't read through the material enough to make a good judgment....or worse... They are playing favorites.

    Thanks Steven. Your comment has been most helpful! So....if I get complaints from those who hate my questions, HP has a reason to delete them. Lol. Still, I wish my objections to their hate speech got half as much attention. ;) Thanks again.

    People use the report button, I would assume. It might even be that x number of flags gets an item deleted and more get the hubber banned from the area. Squidoo used something similar at one point, suspending lenses with a certain number of reports.

    Which certain race and religion do you mean? I have observed that God is made fun of quite frequently, but I'm not sure if you are referring to something else.

    It's not just forums, it has to do with the entire culture. If we speak out enough, maybe one day moderators who are fair will be able to do their jobs. Thanks for commenting, Diana.

    I hear you. My hubs have not been deleted, but my score has gone down by up to 13 points after I've complained about Hate speech. Oh well. I'll likely keep writing anyway, no matter what the moderators do. Thanks for the advice, Portamenteff.

    Good point you've brought up. The banning & the unfeatured process. Regarding the second: if the hubs stay featured long enough, they will receive traffic again. Regarding the bans, another story ENTIRELY......

    Sharing information about MS is a good thing. It is important not to be promotional though. I can't say I've ever experienced that issue. Best of luck to you.

    Well just what you'd expect from San Francisco, the Sanctuary city, where criminal illegal aliens are safe from innocent American citizens' right to security provided by their government.

    Very true, Wesman. Forums should be avoided like the plague (in most cases) Nevertheless. I've made a few appearances.... But I've not asked a question in a forum.

    Love you, TSAD. Thank you for the links. Yep. Some of the moderators here remind me of high school mean girls. I guess they love being prom queens for the day. Sad. But as one commenter said, all publications are biased. Here, it's almost a game.

    I've given them chances....even written to the general manager. I don't think he even read the letter. Well, life isn't always fair...

    Maybe one day they'll get the hint, but it would have to come from upper management.
